I know the cool-kids love Synology; but I’ve made a habit of being a contrary git, so of course I prefer QNAP. According to my embarrassingly large inbox, I purchased my original QNAP TS-210 in 2009. It’s been through at least three sets of disks, served hundreds of hours of music and stored 15 years of photos. Not least of all, it was a key part of a demo environment in a book wot I wrote. It has had regular updates from QNAP, for which I’ve not paid a penny.
I was recently approached by a consultancy looking for Software Defined Networking (SDN) migration case studies. I was unable to provide much help; in H2 2014, precious few organisations claim to use SDN in production. However an interesting question was raised, What are the steps to an SDN Migration?
